Errol Flynn type swashbuckling but with believable costumes and locations. 17th century France at it's merriest where the heroes battle the villains with gusto, the heroines are beautiful but steadfast, and the peasants are around just to provide a backdrop. Cardinal Richelieu is reliably villainous and his clinical death at the end of series one makes way for a equally nasty replacement in the form of a dastardly Spanish spy who would surely be hissed and booed at any cinematic matinee. Light hearted, well produced and straight forward escapism to entertain and amuse. Roll on series three.

If you enjoy watching sexy guys engaging in sword fighting, romancing women, cracking a few jokes and battling the enemy - and all of it set within 17th century France - then this is the show for you..

It's a series of stand-alone episodes but with a long-term story arc developing in the background, which finally comes together by the series final. It's not a drama that has complex storylines or anti-heroes and it doesn't stick faithfully to the original book source, which may annoy purists - though all the main characters are present - it's just a 'lighter' drama for those who want to watch something different to the almost constant dark and gritty crime dramas that are common today. It does have a modern twist, with issues such as slavery and women's rights coming up in two episodes and even Constance is a bit of a modern girl at the side of many previous and dull incarnations of the character - and this time she's married, as the books author originally intended.

The four main characters are well cast and distinctive from one another in a realistic fashion, from young D'artagnan ( Luke Pasqualino does a good job of bringing warmth and humour but also a little darkness to a character who's often the dullest of the main characters or too boyish for some viewers to take seriously. At 23 years of age, he still makes a young, immature and cocky D'artagnan but one with hints of the handsome man and great Musketeer he will become ) to brooding Athos to ladies-man Aramis ( though he has dark aspects to his character as well, crucial to a character who could so easily be 2 dimensional ) to a Porthas who's clearly Porthas but not as cliché or OTT as previous incarnations, making him just as handsome as the other three musketeers.

I have watched all the Musketeer movies so I was thrilled when I found out that the BBC had commissioned a series of the Musketeers. I was not disappointed. It is fabulous and I have lost count of the number of times I have watched Series 1 since purchasing the DVD. The acting, storylines, location, costumes, everything is just superb. The actors gel really well together and seem perfect for the characters they play. They are so well cast: Athos (Tom Burke) the intense and serious one, Aramis (Santiago Carberera) the charming one all the ladies fall for, Porthos (Howard Charles) the cute one always ready for action and D'Artangnan (Luke Pasquilino) the youngest one, brave and so in love with the lovely Constance (Tamla Kari). Maimie McCoy is great as the beautiful and ruthless assassin, Milady De Winter and I really like Ryan Gage who plays the pampered and petulant King Louis XIII. Peter Capaldi is brilliant as the devious Cardinal Richlieu. The choice of the Czech Republic as France in the 1630s is an inspired choice with its rustic and ancient buildings. Absolutely love the series.

To me, Atlantis was a 'meh' BBC show, failing to live up to the standards of Merlin, Doctor Who and Robin Hood. However, I was very interested in the new 'Musketeers' series advertised- and on a Sunday 9'o clock slot. The first episode converted me- the plot was great, the characters interesting and I am a staunch supporter. As the series continues, the characters are developing and getting an episode each- now making it hard to choose a favourite! The casting is excellent, Capaldi is getting some screen time before he takes up the role of the Doctor, and the other Musketeers are well-portrayed. The writing is both funny and gripping, and the show really shines.

I will be sad when the series ends, but I hope series 2 will live up to the (so far) high standards of the first. It's great to watch and I advise buying this as soon as it is released!

This is a wonderful production - carefully and effectively filmed so that it looks the real thing. I can almost smell the filth of the streets of Paris or the Court of Miracles. The casting is excellent - the different characters and back stories of the 4 musketeers beautifully exploited by the different actors and Peter Capaldi's Cardinal Richelieu takes me back to my A-Level history studies. I know it's not entirely historically accurate, but somehow that doesn't matter as it is so well done. The dialogue is fast, witty and very funny and I like the use of 'modern' language. I laugh out loud and there are not many occasions where TV does that for me. Sunday evenings are great and I can't wait to get the DVD and watch the episodes all over again. Well done BBC.
